Last Updated on April 26, 2022 by Christina

A new year means new RVs are rolling in at a General RV dealership near you! And these 2022 RV models are giving us plenty to talk about with new floorplans, more features, and upgraded interiors.

From luxury fifth wheels to 4×4 motorhomes, here are 15 new RVs that have us daydreaming about camping season.

Best new Class A Motorhome for 2022

Coachmen Encore 375RB

If you’re looking for a motorhome with all the comforts of home and plenty of space to stretch out, our pick is the Encore 375RB from Coachmen RV. This Class A motorhome measures in at just over 38 feet and sleeps up to 8. The living area includes an 86-inch sofa and electric fireplace that everyone will want to gather around. The Encore also has a separate room you can customize to meet your needs. Behind a barn sliding door, the multi-functional “BOW” room easily converts from bunkroom to office to wardrobe!

Once you’ve arrived at your destination, you’ll have more amenities to enjoy outdoor living including a power patio awning and 40-inch TV. The Encore also features a full basement with pass-through storage so you can pack everything you need for extended travels.

Our favorite new 2022 Class B Camper Vans

Tiffin Cahaba 19 SC

Class B motorhomes have become a popular choice for adventurous RVers, and the Cahaba 19 SC is rugged and ready for the outdoors. This 2022 camper van is the first Class B from Tiffin Motorhomes, a brand known for exceptional quality and outstanding features. The Cahaba delivers on that promise with Vision off-road wheels, three 100W solar panels, and a Volta Power System. An innovative rear-door mounted MOLLE gear and bike rack plus cargo tie-down anchors for gear storage mean your favorite outdoor toys can go everywhere with you.

Inside, you’ll have everything you need to enjoy exploring including a wet bath and compact galley kitchen. With an abundance of safety features – the parking package with its 360-degree camera will help any RVer feel more confident – and a 6-cylinder Turbo diesel engine to roam roads less traveled, we agree that the Cahaba is out of this outdoor world.

Entegra Launch 19Y

The all new Entegra Launch made our list for its rugged exterior and luxurious interior. This extremely capable 4×4 Class B RV features on-demand four-wheel drive that gives you the freedom to enjoy off-road adventures. On top of that, a 48V lithium power system and 200W roof-mounted solar panels deliver true off-grid performance.

You’ll enjoy this RV’s premium interior amenities including a drop-down overhead bed, sleek European-style cabinetry, and an easy-to-use Firefly Multiplex system. The Launch also features RAM Tough-Track mounts throughout and a rear garage under the bed with L-track mounts for securing cargo so you can enjoy the great outdoors to the fullest.

Thor Sequence 20J

The Sequence 20J is another new Class B motorhome. This easy-to-drive camper van from Thor Motor Coach is built on a RAM ProMaster 3500 XT chassis which makes it very maneuverable, even for first-time RVers. You’ll feel comfortable in the driver’s seat with the 7-inch touchscreen dash that doubles as your backup monitor. Enjoying your favorite apps, music, and podcasts is also easy with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Sequence has been designed with everything you need to live, play, and work on the road. This camper van is also Thule equipped! The Thule patio awning, roof rack, bike rack and roof ladder will help you enjoy even more outdoor adventures. A few other standout features for us were the residential vinyl flooring (this is great if you plan on camping with dogs) and three large opening side windows that let in plenty of natural light and fresh air.

2022’s Best New Class C RV models

Thor Magnitude XG32

Need a Class C motorhome with a powerful diesel engine, four-wheel drive, and plenty of towing capacity? Meet the 2022 Magnitude 4×4 Super Class C RV from Thor Motor Coach. The Magnitude XG32 is built on a Ford F-550 chassis with a 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo diesel engine. Thor also included several safety features and a backup camera so you can travel any road with confidence.

The Magnitude XG32 floorplan is ready for you to relax with theatre seating, a dream dinette, and queen size bed. If you’re bringing the family, you’ll appreciate the full-size pantry and over-cab bunk (500 lb. weight capacity). There’s also a massive, powered sky view shade that you can control from your phone or tablet. Open it when you’re ready to enjoy the views and close for privacy. You’ll also find a Winegard ConnecT Wi-Fi extender + 4G and a Bluetooth coach radio system in the bedroom for some extra entertainment.

The kitchen area inside the new Magnitude Class C motorhome from Thor has a full size fridge, microwave, cooktop and stainless steel sink. There's also several cabinets for storage.

Nexus Rebel 35R

The next new RV on our list is another 4×4 Super Class C – the Nexus Rebel. This diesel motorhome was made for touring the country in ultimate style. It sits on an International chassis and is powered by 350HP Duramax engine with 700 ft. lbs. of torque for power you can feel! You’ll also be able to tow more with a hitch rated at 15,000 lbs.

Nexus is known for its high construction standards and this RV is no exception with a seamless wrap around fiberglass roof and seamless gelcoat fiberglass sidewalls. Other upgraded features of the Nexus Rebel include slide-out toppers throughout, heated and enclosed holding tanks, a water filtration system, and a 6.0 Onan diesel generator that will help you enjoy your travels. And you’ll be able to bring the whole family or invite a couple friends because this motorhome sleeps 7! You and your spouse will have the rear master bedroom all to yourselves, while the grandkids sleep on the bunks, jackknife sofa, or the booth dinette!

Best New Pop-Up Camper for 2022

Aliner Expedition

Another lightweight, affordable option is the Aliner Expedition. This A-frame pop-up camper is great for solo travelers, adventurous couples, or young families. It weighs less than 2,000 lbs. and measures 18 feet long so it’s easy to tow. Each Aliner is constructed with Azdel wall and ceiling panels and premium marine grade flooring for added durability.

We loved the versatility of the floorplan with a rear sofa bed. It comfortably sleeps up to four. Meal prep is simple thanks to the two burner stove, sink, and 3 cu. ft. refrigerator. Plus, there is even a microwave for those nights when you don’t feel like cooking. The front booth dinette is great for enjoying a meal, playing games, or catching up on emails. It converts into a 40 x 80-inch bed. There’s also hidden storage under the seats. Best of all, the Expedition has several windows so you can take in all the views wherever you roam.
